But Tottenham Hotspur are facing a left-back crisis ahead of Sunday’s Premier League tie with the Magpies.

Reguilon is back on the grass but has not yet resumed full training with a number of his teammates currently on international duty.

Matt Doherty also picked up a knock whilst playing for the Republic of Ireland during their shock home defeat to Luxembourg.

In other news, Newcastle have again been linked with a move for Sampdoria defender Omar Colley, with reports that Fulham have joined the race.

The 28-year-old, according to ClubDoria46 via Sport Witness, is being monitored by the pair as well as Leeds United and West Ham United.

The Serie A club reportedly want between £8.5million and £12.8m for the Gambian international, who only recently signed a new contract until June 2025.
